Condiments very often are fermented products, most of them with high contents of salt and therefore very corrosive. This means all machine parts which, come into contact with the product, have to be in stainless steel quality 316L or better.
Membrane filtration (CMF) with ceramic membranes is state-of-the-art for the filtration of condiments. Ceramic membranes are resistant to the corrosive salts and have a long lifetime. These plants can be tailor-made to each client's needs and are available as semi- or fully automated systems. These plants are available in stainless steel quality 316L.
